Now's your chance to help elect humane candidates to office!
It's a big year for MVFA because as a political action committee (PAC), we can engage in political activity by endorsing candidates for office. We are the only PAC for animals in Maryland and your best source of information about voting records and the stated positions of candidates on crucial animal welfare issues. Our goal is to supply animal lovers like you across Maryland with the information that will turn you into "Political Animals for Animals." Then you can make an educated decision about which candidates deserve your humane vote - and which ones don't.
MVFA is a nonpartisan organization that evaluates candidates based on a single criterion: where they stand on animal welfare issues in Maryland. MVFA does not judge candidates based on party affiliation or any other issue. We're all about helping animals by helping you elect humane candidates to the Maryland General Assembly.
HERE'S WHAT TO WATCH FOR IN 2014:
MVFA's Endorsement Questionnaire - In a few short weeks, MVFA will post our Endorsement Questionnaire on our website. This document will be sent to every candidate to the Maryland General Assembly. How candidates answer this questionnaire, coupled with their voting record and their interview with MVFA board members will determine whether they obtain MVFA's endorsement.
MVFA's Humane Scorecard - In June MVFA will post our Humane Scorecard on our website for your review. There's no need to guess about whether your delegates and state senator have supported humane legislation over the past 4 years - we'll provide you with their voting records and give each legislator a score.
